I used Stampin’ Up!’s Abstract Impressions stamp set to make this wreath with the Stamparatus. I used a template I made using the 3″ framelit from Layering Squares Framelits to create the template.
This card is easy to create, however, it isn’t quick! Book a party or privae class with me during November and I will teach you how to create wreath cards with the template and your Stamparatus.

Every time I use this stamp I think of John Denver—-;
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Just saying the name Country Home reminds me of when I heard John Denver sings this song at the Augusta Civic Center a long time ago. Don’t ask!
Another classic Country Home card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. Whew that is a mouthful! I just call it the Tin Tile folder. I embossed the Copper Foil sheet with folder and the Big Shot, then sponged the foil piece tile Tranquil Tide ink to give it a little weathered copper effect.
I used Stampin’ Blends to color the images and fussy cut the images. I also used the Corrugated Dynamic folder on the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock behind the copper piece.
I like how this card came together and hope you do, too.
We had a small turnout for October’s Maine Stampers Team Meeting, only 6! So I took suggestions on what they would like to do after the business part of the meeting. The unamious decision was making a holiday sampler with 3″ x 3″ squares. Some had missed last spring’s 3″ x 3″ swap where we all brought our squares, swapped, and made the sampler at the meeting. 9 team members participated. This time we each designed a square and made 6, one for each person attending. We swapped so we each had 6 different squares. They all took their squares home to finish their sampler project. I gave several ideas on how they could finish their sampler and and am excited to see their finished projects. Here is mine:
My original 3″ x 3″ square is the upper right square (deer). I added the middle square in top row and the middle row left rectangle to complete my sampler. Lots of different Christmas stamp sets.
Abstract Impressions is what this birthday card is all about. I used the stamp set for the card as well as the matching Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.
Everyone is always needing birthday cards, so I try to make at least one birthday card at club each month. This card took a little longer to make as the flowers and leaves are double stamped, plus four layers and ribbon.
